When you are into music, I mean really into music, these days, there really isn’t a whole lot to get excited about. Most of what radio is playing is canned, cut and paste nonsense that has been, and will continue to be, recycled garbage.
I know it sounds like I am getting on an elitist soap-box here, but it’s the truth.
It takes something really cool, really unique, and really special to catch my attention these days. I am sure the same is true for you.
That’s why when I caught the It Might Get Loud DVD recently, I was pretty much left wanting more. So much in fact, that I watched it twice more. Then I watched it again a few days later.
I don’t know how this escaped me when it was originally released in 2008, but I am glad I found it now. I want to share with you what makes it so damn awesome.

It Might Get Loud DVD
What do you get when you mix Jimmy Page, The Edge, and Jack White?
You get a lesson in hardcore awesome and a bit of musical history.
The three guitarists, arguably the most unique voices of their respective generations, get together to share their love for music and guitar with each other, and us.
We get a glimpse inside the creative minds that have generated some of the most memorable and important music of the past 50 years. Not only do we get to look backwards, and get invited into their creative processes, but we get to see them play together!
It Might Get Loud DVD Highlights
I want to highlight some of the segments that really caught my attention.
Sprinkled throughout, each guitarist shares with the others how to play some of their signature tunes.
When Jimmy starts playing “Whole Lotta Love”, you see some magic. Sure, that’s a pretty simple song that both Edge and Jack know how to play, but they gather around Jimmy to watch him do it like school boys—and rightfully so, I would do the same thing.
The Edge has a great segment where he talks about the creative spark that led him to pen one of the greatest songs ever written, “Sunday, Bloody Sunday.”
Jack White has a segment where he teaches Jimmy and The Edge how to play “Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground.” In terms of ultimate rock n’ roll fantasies, how does that one sound?
The program reaches a crescendo when all three sit down for a jam. The song they choose is the classic “The Weight” by the band—with all three on guitar, and The Edge and Jack White on vocal. It’s one of those moments that can produce chills.
Overall, one thing is clear—this DVD belongs in your collection right now!
